Earlier this month, the International Quilt Show came to Rosemont, Illinois, just outside of Chicago.
I was able to go, but only had three hours to spare.
It's amazing what you can accomplish in 3 hours when you set your mind to it ;)
I'm always drawn to these retro feedsack prints, even though they aren't my usual style.
Amazing shades of wool
I was so thrilled to see that Dawn Shuck of Sew Cherished in Branson, Mo. was back!
I spent so much time in her booth last year and I think I spent even more time this year!
Sew much wooly beauty that it is so hard to take it all in!
Some are her original designs and some by other favorite designers.
How can I ever decide what to take home?!
Patterns, kits, wool, thread and all the extras for finishing - Dawn had it all!
Another booth that I was introduced to last year returned!
I just love the red and cream combo and the teeny tiny red buttons that she uses on so many of her designs.
The Olde World Quilt Shoppe that I visited in Arizona carried a lot of her patterns
and I was just as overwhelmed there too :)
I'm not a quilter, but love the additions of wool and EPP included on many of her designs ~ I think they could be adapted to my abilities...
Again how to choose!
Such a sweet grouping!
Love those little flower pots and tiny wool flowers!
And guess who was right next door?
Her talented daughter's company ~ Blueberry Backroads!
Amazing needlework talent runs in their family :)
Such a sweet set of snowmen!
Believe it or not, after shopping, I was able to quickly take in the Quilt Show as well, and even have some photos of the amazing quilts. I will be back with those soon!
